Today I came across another treasure trove of silly material sent to me by sound and light man, Carl Frisch; several copies of newsletters Silver Laughter did. They were put together by our manager, Art Stenstrom, and written by the boys ourselves. Some of it is pretty silly. Regardless, it is a big piece of promotional material we put out for our fans every couple of months.
This first one is from the middle of December of 1976 and announces the release of our first album, “Handle With Care” on page 1, as well as some of the record stores in which it would be available.
Silliness begins on page 2 where we boys each wrote a piece for the publication. It felt a little like homework from our old public school days! Sometimes we referenced friends we had met along the way, or places we played and had a good time.
Silliness continues on page 3 as Ken finishes up his contribution which is followed by Paul’s and then Carl’s. Up next were a few notes from fans who wrote to us through the newsletter PO box.
Finally, page 4 concludes with our itinerary for the next 6 weeks or so. This one has changes marked by Carl (I guess) to scheduled events.
